International norms: MOST European nations do not allow elective abortion (8) or limit it to 15 weeks or earlier (39). In contrast, 0 of 50 U.S. states limit abortion to 15 weeks or earlier. In fact, the USA is among a ‘Group of 7’ nations which do allow late-term abortions. This G7 includes: Canada, China, the Netherlands, North Korea, Singapore, Vietnam and the United States.

It is interesting that the ACLU sued its buddy, HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, to overturn the FDA regulation on the Abortion Pill that called for in-person physician oversight.
Was Becerra really opposed to this so that he needed to be taken to court?
As a team, the ACLU, the American College of ObGyns, and various other attorneys work together to achieve pro-abortion goals. If they need an Amicus brief, they round up their fellow Medical Associations and other pals, including the
- American Medical Association,
- American Academy of Family Physicians,
- American Society for Reproduce time Medicine,
- National Abortion Federation,
- North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology,
- National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women’s Health,
- Planned Parenthood,
- Reproductive Health Access Project—
Well, just see the full list here.
As you can tell, there is a team at work to undermine the law concerning when, where, how and by whom the Abortion Pill can be supplied.
The team includes expert witnesses who may identify as anonymous providers. And their testimonies are remarkably similar.
So, while it may appear as though the FDA simply agreed to new rules as a way of helping women during the Covid-19 environment, there is an army behind the effort to change the rules, and for us to think the old rule will apply at some future date is wishful thinking.
So now, what happens to Ky’s laws against distributing Abortion Pills by mail, by webcam, using federal funds, and always reporting any complications? How can our law be enforced that requires women to be advised upon receiving the Abortion Pill that it can be reversed?
Will the federal rulings dismantle Ky’s hard-won pro-life law victories?
We won’t take such change ‘sitting down’! KyRTL is on the move. Our executive director Addia Wuchner with our pro-life partners will work to maintain safety standards for women seeking abortions. Please join our effort by donating to KyRTL. Watch for more details!
Pushing the envelope or pushing the coat hanger?

When we think of someone who sells drugs to a buyer, knowing that drug will result in an ER visit for nearly one out of 20 buyers and surgery for almost that many, we generally think of illegal drug dealers. Think again. The new drug dealers are pushing do-it-yourself abortion with Mifeprex and Misoprostol. Why?
The abortion industry has two significant problems:
- Most doctors don't want to do abortions. Roughly 3/4 of ob-gyns will not perform abortions. The doctors that do perform abortions are aging out of practice.
- Medical standard of care practice requirements like informed consent, at-minimum 24-hour waiting periods, hospital privileges, procedure rooms adequately sterilized and stocked with resuscitative equipment, trained anesthetists and other standards of medical care practice that the rest of us comprehend as essential to patient safety, the abortion industry disdains as "preventing access." The real complaint, however, is "cuts into our bottom line profit margin."
The COVID-19 epidemic has brought the primary, financial objective of the abortion industry into sharp focus: to abort as many women as possible in as little time as possible, with as little follow up as possible. Abortion clinics have flouted requirements to cancel elective surgeries, now claiming preposterously that instead of a "choice," elective abortion is essential medical care. Abortion clinics cancel pelvic exams, pap smears, other cancer screenings and STI screenings; they flout state laws by refusing to report pregnancies in cases of statutory rape, refusing to obtain state-mandated parental or legal guardian consent and ignoring COVID-19 abortion bans. But you can't have it both ways… essential medical care requires complying with medical standards of care, which the abortion industry refuses to do because money for abortion is their bottom line.
National Right to Life reports in its May magazine that the term “surgical abortion” is being replaced with “procedural abortion.” Newspeak is an especially fierce battlefront of the culture war.
The NRLC story refers to a Rewire.News article, published last month, stating:
Rewire.News has updated its style guide to more accurately describe abortion care. Instead of referring to “medication and surgical” abortion to distinguish between abortions induced by pills and abortions performed as an in-clinic procedure, Rewire.News will use “medication and procedural” abortion.
The article explains that for pregnancies in the first trimester (up to 12 weeks) the procedure is a five to 10 minute process “involving gentle suction to remove the products of conception,” and it does not typically require cutting or suturing of any kind. To see an abortion of a 12-week old pre-born baby, see Dr. Bernard Nathanson’s video, The Silent Scream. There are surgical aspects.
Numerous metal instruments are inserted into the woman to achieve the abortion. Tissue must be cut— the amniotic sac in which the baby lives has to be torn open so that the suction tube can vacuum out his or her body parts (— at 12 weeks we know whether it’s a boy or girl). A polyp forceps must be inserted to crush the head before the skull bones and brains can be sucked out. So, by definition, even early stage abortion is surgery. (See the AMA definition of surgery.)
The article quotes healthcare providers who are irked when they are accused of using “a whole bunch of critical medical supplies and take PPE [personal protective equipment] away from the hospital” during the pandemic.
After all, they say, a first-trimester abortion only requires “2 pairs of gloves (1 for the ultrasound and 1 for the procedure) and a reusable face shield. A gown and mask are not usually required… If a person is forced to carry their pregnancy to term, their cesarean section would require significantly more PPE…” (We have inserted pictures of face shields in case readers may be wondering how they differ from masks.)
Now you know. Clinic personnel will not be wearing face masks for surgical abortions. We wonder— Do they require the patients do so?
Sincere thanks to the sidewalk counselors who have consistently stood nearby the women entering the EMW clinic despite the pandemic. A wonderful description of what is going on there, written by Ed Harpring, the Pro-Life Coordinator for the Archdiocese of Louisville, can be read on Facebook.
